Village at the Park is a privately owned company which is owned by the Hurst Lifecare Group and the Wellington Tenths Trust.

The Wellington Tenths Trust is owned by the descendants of the original Te Atiawa/Taranaki whanau people of Wellington. The Trust originally owned what is the former Athletic Park and started the village development in the late 90’s. In 2002 they entered into partnership with the Hurst Lifecare Group. The Hurst Lifecare Group is a privately owned, family orientated business with strong core family values. It is these common values that have created what has become a special and successful partnership with the Tenths Trust.

Our Groups Chief Executive Officer, National Quality Advisor and Financial Managers are responsible for supporting our General Managers and their teams in achieving the overall strategic objectives of the Hurst Lifecare Group. They also ensure all internal and external financial, legal and auditing requirements are met across all of the facilities owned by the Group.

The Hurst Lifecare Group has over 20 years of experience and extensive knowledge in operating and developing retirement villages.

Village at the Park is pleased to be part of this group, which is one of the leading Retirement Village operators in New Zealand.

The Directors and Management Team are committed to ensuring we are always up to date with the latest developments. We are a privately owned family orientated business and pride ourselves on running high quality establishments.
